GILFORD – The Lynyrd Skynyrd concert at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion kept Gilford Police dancing as they made 17 arrests or detentions during Saturday's show.
By contrast, there were no arrests or detentions at Friday's Ringo Starr All Star Band show.
Lt. Kris Kelley said most of the detentions made at Saturday's show were for intoxication and arrests were for under-aged drinking. He said one person was arrested for drugs and falsifying evidence, one for resisting arrest and criminal threatening and a local man, Derek Emans, was picked up on an outstanding bench warrant from Laconia.
Kelley said Saturday's policing needs were on a par with other major shows at the outdoor music venue.
